You Learn Something Every Day

During this deployment the world has granted me...shall we say...lots of chances to expand my skill set.  So far I have mastered:
  • Installing a shower head
  • Jumping a car (Scary as hell BTW)
  • Installing wiper blades
  • Gluing baseboard heaters back together
  • How to drive to Newport, RI
  • How to survive minor surgery on a 22 month old
  • Baking a bitchen apple pie
  • Juicing (as in making fruit juice, not some kind of weird steroid thing)
  • How to wire and reset a cable box
  • Replacing a toilet seat
So look at that.  I guess this will pay off in some little ways.  I am suddenly becoming exactly the kind of person you want in your lifeboat.
